Show #285 – February 13, 2016
Guests: Connie Carpenter-Phinney, Don Walker
I love my work!
Connie Carpenter-Phinney has been a champion since she was 14, and today as the wife of Davis Phinney, the mother of BMC’s Taylor Phinney, and the mother of a world class Nordic skiing daughter, she relishes the quirky, fun, and fascinating lifestyle that they have developed over the past decades.
Connie and I talk about a variety of topics including Parkinson’s disease (Davis was diagnosed at the young age of 40) and the Sufferlandria competition that is raising money for the Davis Phinney Foundation.
We get in to a bit of women’s racing history and speculation about how and why it has changed – especially n light of today’s great competitors.
And, of course we discuss Taylor’s bid for gold at the 2016 Olympics.
NAHBS 2016 is around the corner and it’s always fun to find out what’s coming up for the artisan show that is now in its 12th year!
